BG-250

 

The BG-250 was one of the first instruments ever introduced to the Gold Tone line and it’s the remarkable features that we keep this great player around. Its convertible resonator feature allows for an easy conversion between a bluegrass (resonator) banjo and a genuine old time (openback) banjo by simply removing the 13” resonator and mounting brackets. Like many old time banjos, this model features an openback pot assembly design utilizing 24 shoe lugs instead of a one-piece flange.  This cuts down on the weight by about 3lbs while still being able to deliver a powerful and punchy tone.  This convertible feature is great for players wanting to play in both popular styles. Other features include a bound rosewood fingerboard, a 12” bound mahogany resonator, the new GT Master planetary tuners, flat-top 20-hole bell brass tone ring, and a complete setup here at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida.
